Hit Windows key type msconfig

goto the services tab and tick hide all Microsoft services, untick everything remaining

goto the general tab, select selective startup and tick load system services and untick load startup items

click ok and reboot, play game

to go back to normal just go back into msconfig and select normal startup

Which model Gigabyte motherboard is this ?

I also know ram was tested with memtest and xp seems ok, but it is worthwhile pulling 4GB out if you can and try playing and then swap the sticks around and try again. If it is possible on your setup.

SFC /scannow comes back clean ?

Gigabyte 970A-D3. I think this is it.

I'll try taking out one stick of ram at a time. This is a custom build and all the parts are reasonably new; the RAM came in packs of 2. I can take out one at a time, test, and swap if needed.

What were the commands for the /scannow?

just open a command prompt as administrator

sfc /scannow

Running the scan now. So these .exe updates, I just run them and they're good to go? It's not like a BIOS update that I have to worry about doing right?

No not like a bios, you just run them.

it is interesting that the bios you need to use to support a FX CPU is a beta bios though

It's a beta BIOS? Huh. I used the @BIOS updater, it just uses the web to update to the most recent version. There was only one version to update too. The only thing I noticed was a new BIOS splash screen before booting, but I'm not getting BSODs anymore.

sfc /scannow is done, Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.
